In the 1970s, I studied tonal painting in Eltham with Alan Martin, one of Max Meldrum’s students. I later conducted painting classes at my own mud brick studio in Eltham.
I participated in the original Eltham Prize at the community centre, opened by Gough Whitlam. I lived in Eltham for 18 years, and still maintain an interest in the area through my son, who lives at Kangaroo Ground, conducting a building design practice there.
Born in Geelong, Bill Caldwell first studied art by correspondence at the age of nine.
Graduating from RMIT, he pursued a successful career in graphic design, while painting as a hobby. Turning to painting full time, he has won numerous awards, including Camberwell, twice. His work is represented in collections in England, USA, France and Japan, as well as throughout Australia. He is a member of the Twenty Melbourne Painters Society (currently as secretary), and teaches at the Peninsula Arts Society.
